Joseph Randle was arrested on a warrant for speeding on Monday morning, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Enduring his fourth arrest since October of 2014, Randle's most recent brush with the law didn't have any of the negative connotations associated with the first three. Apparently, he arrived at an ex-girlfriend's residence in Irving, TX early Monday morning searching for a place to sleep on his way to Kansas. However, he wasn't welcome, and an ensuing phone call to the police resulted in their arrival on the scene, where the warrant was discovered for speeding in a school zone. There's been no indication that he's attempting a return to the NFL, but his off-the-field behavior is certainly enough to keep teams from checking in on the 24-year-old running back.
The 23-year-old has seemingly been allergic to positive press over the last two years, and this latest brush with the law won't help his cause as he looks for another opportunity in the NFL. If Randle ends up signing anywhere in the offseason, he'd have to serve a four-game suspension stemming from his violation of the league's Personal Conduct Policy, a ban that was handed down by the league shortly after he was released by the Cowboys earlier in November.
Joseph Randle has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
Randle has not joined a team since being released by the Cowboys last week, but he will be forced to sit out four games if and when he does sign a new contract. Given the personal issues he is dealing with and the pending suspension, Randle will not be making a fantasy impact anytime soon.
Joseph Randle (back/personal) was released by the Cowboys on Tuesday, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Between injuries, personal issues and a possible looming suspension, Randle already seemed unlikely to play again in 2015. He had the first shot to replace DeMarco Murray in the Dallas backfield, but Randle ultimately managed just 76 carries for 315 yards (4.1 YPC) and four touchdowns in six games behind a top-notch offensive line. Darren McFadden handled most of the workload the past two games and will likely continue to do so in Week 9 against the Eagles, with Christine Michael and Rod Smith providing depth. Randle is unlikely to draw interest from another team this season.
Joseph Randle (personal/back) will not be available for Sunday's game against the Eagles, David Helman of the Dallas Cowboys ' official site reports.
Randle is uncertain to return before the end of the season, with injuries, a personal issue and a possible suspension all hanging over his head. At the very least, he'll miss Sunday's divisional matchup, leaving Darren McFadden as the clear lead back against a tough Eagles defense.
